Young lady who emerged best graduating student in UI with 7.0 CGPA speaks after gaining Stanford scholarship



Ofure Ebhomielen, a young Nigerian lady who broke an academic record at the University of Ibadan (UI) by becoming the first female to get the highest CGPA of 7.0 has spoken on life after securing a scholarship to Stanford University for her masters.

The intelligent lady graduated from the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science in 2019, and maintained the 7.0 CGPA throughout her course of study in the institution.

Speaking in an interview with Legit TV, Ofure revealed that she was the fourth person to have such a feat but the first female.

While a student in UI, Ofure said many knew her in 200 level and she started helping to make people better at their studies.

When asked how she was able to pull off the US admission, Ofure jokingly said she applied and had to tell the coordinator that she cannot fund herself as the dollar to naira conversion is very high. She revealed that the offer came to her when she was eating and least expected it.

Ofure said unlike in Nigeria, the professors at Stanford are so approachable, citing how she fell ill and was not punished for not writing a test.

Ofure added that studying in the US is tasking, saying she got drained when she took only two courses in a semester unlike in Nigeria where the lady had survived 14.
